Native advertising on social media is the method of showing paid content to users in a way that looks organic.where an ad follows the form, function, and feel of the content of the media where it’s placed
Promoted Facebook posts and promoted tweets are good examples of native ads, as they appear similar to standard posts in users’ feeds while having their reach extended with an ad budget.
A recent study found that consumers looked at native ads 53% more often than display ads.
Native ads are currently considered more effective in terms of engagement, as they enable marketers to target audiences with content that closely matches their experience.
Native advertising, in the context of empowered marketer, describes advertising that adapts to its surroundings to fit in on any given website or social media platform. In other words, it is advertising that tries not to stand out to the point of being interruptive — it blends into its environment. This way the ads feel less like an advertisement, and more like a natural part of the site or platform.
An example of this kind of ad would be a character in a movie drinking a certain soda with the logo pointed directly toward the screen so that the audience can see it. The point is to be natural and to not be overbearing in terms of advertising.
We can say that Native Ads are ads appear as part of the design and flow of the web page they are located on. Rather than standing out as an obvious hard-selling ad, native ads tend to have an editorial look and feel, with a softer selling approach.

a directive used to tell search engines to not include that particular page in its list of search results.

A behavioral economics concept that suggests that small, subtle, and often indirect changes in the environment can influence and guide people's behavior towards making better choices. It is based on the idea that people often make choices that are not in their best interest because of cognitive biases or other external factors thai influence their decision-making process.
Nudges can be designed to encourage people to make better choices without forcing them to do so. For example, placing healthy food options at eye level in a cafeteria can nudge people towards making healthier choices. Similarly, using default options, such as enrolling employees in a retirement plan by default, can nudge people towards saving for their future.
The idea behind Nudge Theory is that these small nudges can have a big impact on behavior change without limiting people's freedom of choice. The theory has been applies in various domains, including healthcare, environmental conservation, and public policy, t encourage people to make better decisions for themselves and society.
The rel="noreferrer" is a HTML link attributes that tells the browser not to send the HTTP referer header to the linked page when someone clicks on the link. The referer header usually contains information about the page the user came from, and some websites use this information for analytics, tracking, and security purposes. By adding rel="noreferrer" to a link, you can prevent the linked site from knowing the URL of the page the user came from your as analytics won't show who refered that link. Instead, it will mistakenly show as direct traffic in your acquisition channels report.
The rel="nofollow" is a HTML attribute that tells search engines not to follow the link and not to credit it with any search engine optimization (SEO) benefits. This means that if a website links to another site using rel="nofollow", search engines will not count that link as a vote of confidence for the linked site. Nofollow links are often used for user-generated content like comments, forum posts, and social media profiles to prevent spam and maintain the integrity of search results.
When you click on a link on a website, sometimes it opens a new window or tab to show you something else. This is useful, but it can also be a security risk because the new window can control the original window that opened it. To prevent this, web developers can add a special code called "noopener" to the link, which stops the new window from being able to control the original window. It's like putting up a fence between the two windows to keep them separate and safe from each other.
When a search engine crawls a webpage, it follows all the links on that page to discover new pages to index. By default, search engines assume that all links on a webpage are trustworthy and follow them to the destination page. However, sometimes website owners may not want search engines to follow a particular link, such as if it's a paid link or a user-generated link that may be spammy or low-quality.
Adding the rel="nofollow" attribute to a link tells search engines not to follow that link, and therefore, not to pass any "link juice" or ranking power to the destination page. This can help prevent spammy or low-quality links from affecting a website's overall search engine rankings.
